Sainte Marguerite Island: a corner of paradise

The island is also home to archaeological remains and Fort Royal, which houses the Iron Mask and Fort Royal Museum.
Since 2021, monumental statues by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, molded from the faces of six Cannes residents, have been submerged near the shore of Sainte-Marguerite Island, forming the first underwater ecomuseum in France and the Mediterranean. An ideal place for sports and family activities!
